Blood Feud: The Saga of Pandora Zwieback, Book 1

Multiple Formats

The thrilling debut of a dark-urban-fantasy novel series, by the bestselling author of X-Men: The Chaos Engine Trilogy and Final Destination: Dead Man's Hand!

Sixteen-year-old Goth girl Pandora Zwieback has a major problem: she's just discovered that her New York City hometown is the stalking ground for every monster and ghoul out to raise a little hell (literally!)...BUT she's apparently the only one who can see them. That means she can't tell her friends or family about the dangers around them—not unless she wants to spend the rest of her life locked up in a psychiatric ward.

But before Pan has a chance to make sense of her increasingly weird life, she finds herself in the middle of a war among rival vampire clans. Elegant Gothic Lolitas from Japan on one side, silk-suited London vamps on the other, leather-clad hunters from Eastern Europe in the middle, and all after the same prize: a mysterious crate recently delivered to the horror-themed museum owned by Pan's father.

What is the terrifying secret of Item #179? How do its contents tie into an incident from the blood-drenched past of Pan's new friend, a 400-year-old, shape-shifting monster hunter named Annie? And, more important, will Pan survive long enough to get any answers?

Praise for Blood Feud: The Saga of Pandora Zwieback, Book 1:

"A fun and very much recommended read that shouldn't be overlooked."—Midwest Book Review

"A big-style cinematic vampire and monster hunter shoot-'em-up with a very human, sweet kid caught in the crossfire... but her relationship with her parents and close friends makes the story gold."—Goodreads

"A young adult book that does the all-important job of translating well to an adult audience. Roman's writing is wonderfully crisp, drawing us into a hidden world that is great fun. Definitely recommended for the target audience (and us readers who are that little bit older)."—Taliesin Meets the Vampires

"One of those fabulous books that manages to straddle the young adult/adult fiction divide... catering equally for teens and more, ahem, 'mature' readers alike with a light touch that makes it a joy to read."—BCF Book Reviews

I'm keeping this review short. The story features great characters that I can feel myself into, and it is a good read, but I'm a sucker for the genre. A bit like Grimm, but with a very different kind of protagonist. Also I like to see the [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
